Thor 2 enlists Patty Jenkins to helm
Here’s some news for thunder fans everywhere regarding the next instalment of Thor.
A director has been confirmed to take control of the sequel, none other than Patty Jenkins according to Den of Geek.
Jenkins is most famous for directing the 2003 flick Monster, which was a dark tale of murder that stared Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci (which Jenkins wrote, too).
She has also written for several American sitcoms including Arrested Development and Entourage.
Jenkins does have some big shoes to fill, of course, as Kenneth Branagh helmed the original and very successful Thor film. Branagh will likely return for the sequel as a producer.
It had been previously thought that Brian Kirk (of Game of Thrones fame) would be the one to replace Branagh in the director’s chair, but obviously that isn’t the case.
Monster was certainly a well put together film, so we’re hoping Thor 2 is in pretty good hands.
However, the bad news is that the release date has slipped. While it’s still 2013, instead of July the Thor sequel will now be released in November. So we’ve got two years to wait, basically, assuming no further slippage.
The original Thor film received a somewhat mixed reception from critics, although cinema-goers voted it a success with $450 million scooped at the box office. The sequel was pretty swiftly announced, unsurprisingly.
